Early edition of Rockwells autobiography, complete with illustrations E748.R6745
August 31, 2012
While this book has been floating around the internet for more than a decade, it has previously only been available in text html or derivative pdf formats. I believe that faem.com was the first to have it up and it was copied and pasted and made into pdfs on the ANP site, solar general and elsewhere.
This, however, is a scanned page image version taken from the 2nd. ed. copyrighted by J. V. Morgan and published by Parliament House in 1963. As this was published just before 1964 deadline and the copyright never renewed, I think I am in the clear legally, even though post-1964 editions still exist. As previously stated, the text has been online more than a decade and the copyright holder, whoever that may be, has not complained to my knowledge.
Coincidentally, this was scanned and uploaded on August 25, 2012, the forty-fifth anniversary of the authors death. I only realized that as I was uploading the text. I think technically the process was over in the early minutes of Aug. 26, but at least the scanning, pdf printing, etc. was on the anniversary.
